Dreidel by Don Maclean. Hannukah this year is between 10th and 18th December so I thought it was appropriate to choose a song for the festival. Dreidels are game pieces for a traditional Jewish game. They’re a kind of dice, spun rather than thrown, and the song reflects that. The game is popular at Hannukah and the pieces are given as small gifts.  

The picture is of a New Year table (in Germany one year) but festive table settings are pretty interchangeable for various feasts!
